      Would like to get some thoughts on hands like this one:

      Preflop I look at his standard stats
      Villain 20/18/4.8AF/75% Fvs3bet/12% 4bet

      @BB = nitty player who will almost always fold so not worried about playing this in an OOP sandwich.

      @Flop I look at the following stats:
      Raise 1st in = @EP 10% / @MP 12% / @CO 41%
      Flop cbet 89% / AFq = 50%
      Turn cbet 75% / AFq 62%
      River cbet 0% / AFq 14%

      So, his opening range@CO widens a LOT ...
      He like to double barrel a LOT and gives up a lot of rivers/rly passive there

      Flop rly dry, vs his range almost always the best hand ...
      Don't want to donk coz he's rly aggro @ flop & turn ...
      Also c/r on such a dry board is BS ...

      I could donk the turn, but again ... he has super high AF & AFq ...
      Not much has changed, so I c/c again ...

      If he bets river I can fold easily and if he checks behind I win almost always.

      I know a lot of the nits out there would be saying "it's burning money, just give it up" etc ...

      I know, it's thin but it should be +EV right?

      I mean it's all about odds ...

      Yeah, I know I don't have HUGE equity or anything on such a board even vs his super wide range ...

      But I do get the right price on both streets for the equity that I do have vs his range and his tendencies/statistics also speak for themselves ...

      Flame on boys & girls =)

      Pretty much the same story in this hand, but vs this guy I was planing on calling down all streets coz ... (possibly folding only if T or Q hits)
      51% steal@SB and rly high barreling frequencies on all streets (and don't tell me it's sample ... I have 6,8k hands on the guy ! (but no personal history vs him))

      1) I think it is fine. Although I´d likely just raise on the turn rather than call him down if I think he is barreling too often
      2) If you don´t 3-bet pf, then I also like it. AJ is likely a little too strong to fold on the turn barrel.
